How workers' compensation payments work in North Carolina

If you suffer a work-related injury, chances are that you will have some questions about workers' compensation. These benefits are available to covered employees who suffer an injury or illness on the job and need medical treatment and to take time away from work.

Why was my workers' compensation claim denied?

Work-related injuries can happen in any workplace across North Carolina. In general, a person who suffers one of these injuries will be able to secure workers' compensation benefits to help cover the cost of medical treatment and time away from work that may be necessary.

Workers' Compensation Opt-out, not a good option for North Carolina.

Employees may not recognize that Opt-out programs are a new and troubling trend in the United States. An Opt-out system essentially allows an employer to develop their own workplace injury plans. "Those plans generally cover fewer injuries, cut off benefit payments sooner, control access to doctors and even impose mandatory settlements" according to a NPR - ProPublica investigation. North Carolinians should be aware of this disturbing trend, and work to ensure that it does not affect employees in this state in the future. 

North Carolina employers recognized for safe workplace conditions

While we often hear about the negative sides to workplace safety, North Carolina Department of Labor recently celebrated one county’s companies, which have made workplace safety a top priority. The Labor Commissioner recognized the companies for putting their employees’ health first by doing whatever they can to make sure employees are safe when they return home to their families.
